    It's quite simple really, for the Green Party at least, if we outlined all our policies we'd run out of words. The issues that we have outlined in this manifesto are the ones we are most passionate about; but also the three areas we left out were left out somewhat on purpose as these areas are in a constant flux and it's impossible to predict how things will be, so we didn't try to predict things that we quite simply didn't have the knowledge to predict.



    Awwww yeahhhhh

    I shall give my verdict in a few ticks (not that I actually know what the original song sounds like :rofl:)
    It's fairly new on the scene, made a fairly major breakthrough at the weekend in the UK after being performed on the BBC twice in one night. So, don't worry, most people haven't heard it yet! :rofl:

    Hell no

    I've got a slight stammer when I talk and I definitely can't sing.
    If it helps, I have a stammer sometimes, but that's probably because I've been quite stressed recently.

    I know people with stammers, it's really quite common and it's something to be proud of!

    Why not legislate for it so you don't have to keep pledging it?
    We've probably been some of the most productive Socialist MPs in terms of legislation.
    In fairness some of the basic stuff like Right to Buy we've attempted to legislate but because of the minority left government we've held back on some important stuff.

    Looking at the manifestos:
    the Tories made up some seriously McCarthyite rubbish like 'radical leftist policies' (with the Libs? Seriously?)
    Labour didn't do much better with their cheap shots at 'Nazi UKIP', that the Tories somehow wanted to abolish prisons, and the incorrect claim that the Socs tried to amend the Free State's constitution - no, no we didn't...
    UKIP's policies were all Bonapartist
    Liberals - the manifesto is juvenilia
    Greens - just weak. Almost too much detail in the policies making it boring - background also makes it hard to read.

    In fairness, I'll criticise the Socs and say it is quite similar to the last GE but they're core socialist policies. I tried to make a new design but I'm shite at that sorta thing so we had Republic make it again.

    We have you, Rakas and Nigel saying you've run out of words when the house should have supported my amendment.
    Personally, I did support it - would've seconded if I'd seen you ask

    Yes but arguably that was true of most parties, other then the Tories. But UKIP are most definitely not liberal.
    Not even if you compare them to the nazi party.

    The tories are actually quite liberal, i call it sensibly liberal, not liberal to the extent that they would endorse the exploitation of women by legalising brothels, but liberal enough

    We chose to take a format that works, talk about why not to vote for the other guys (why you and labour failed over the last 6 months), talk about what we have done, and then state the main policies. The tax reforms are no minor undertaking and will allow us to run the deficit or surplus we wish to fund all our spending. We are pledging ensuring national security and economic security, near eliminating tax avoidance unintended by government, helping people to be financially responsible and secure whilst improving education and, I'm yet to finish crunching the numbers, decreasing everybody's tax burden and increasing investment in Britain, at the very least cutting the taxes of the very poorest in society.

    "We chose to take a format that works" - Remains to be seen

    "national security" - You have pledged nothing about our national security. The Liberals on the other hand have.

    "decreasing everybody's tax burden and increasing investment in Britain, at the very least cutting the taxes of the very poorest in society." - If you're yet to crunch the numbers, how can the electorate trust you'll go through with it?

    How long have we used this format and what's the worst we've done with it?

    We've said as much as you have on national security, with a greater inherent trust and clearly greater knowledge

    The number crunching reveals the details, how many will have a lower tax burden, etc, but I am certain it will be a reduction for the very poorest, no numbers need crunching to say that much.

    When was the last time you guys actually got into Government and won an election? How do we know its not solely your name that gives you votes?

    We've talked about Daesh, Foreign Affairs and Defence. I don't see the Tories doing so.

    It's not I but that the voters that have to trust you on that

    Are you mad, what did the LabLib do in 6 months to curb tax avoidance? I welcome the Tory plans to nearly eradicate tax avoidance, and I welcome their stance on taxes on consumption, I welcome their stance on lowering the taxes of the low paid, I welcome their stance on not legalising brothels.
